In an effort to retain their top spot as the go to contractor for the U.S. Military's service rifle; Colt Mfg. has introduced what it considers to be the next rifle for our armed services. It was officially unveiled at the 2010 Association of the U.S. Army Convention and Exposition, held Oct. 25-27 in Washington, D.C. The CM901 is Colt's pony in the race. It has some stiff competition:
- The XCR by Robinson Armament
- The M6A4 IAR, or similar variant, from LWRC
- The Adaptive Combat Rifle by Remington
- The SR-16 by Knight Armament
- The SCAR by FNH
